The $50 per cabin donation is expected to generate approximately $1.5 million for the American Red Cross, According to Carnival president Bob Dickinson, "Words cannot begin to express the feelings of sorrow and sadness we've experienced over the past week. It is our hope that this donation will allow the dedicated personnel at the American Red Cross to carry out their duties as we pray and mourn for those killed and injured in these attacks."
